[movies]GOES: Animation of Shenandoah Fires - Image and animation by Marit Jentoft-Nilsen, NASA GSFC
By November 9, 2000, the two fires in the Shenandoah National Park near Old Rag Mountain and the Pinnacles Picnic Area had combined into one fire that consumed 20,000 acres. Cool temperature and moist air helped firefighters contain the fire. Throughout the Southeast, fires in the fall of 2000 burned over 120,000 acres.This animation shows smoke from the Shenandoah fire on November 5, 2000.
